Raffi & Mandela 2001
Raffis tribute to humanity's hero sprang from Mandelas call to global leaders in 2000 to turn this world around, for the children. In 2001, Raffi sang this for Nelson Mandela at Toronto's Ryerson University.
The song expresses the essence of Raffis Child Honouring philosophy, a children-first paradigm for societal change. A child-friendly world enriches all of us, and offers the best chance to create humand and sustainable cultures. All children want to live in peace, and to follow their dreams.
Child Honouring sounds a call to make a new covenant with the worlds children. Now is the hour, and weve got the power to turn this world around, Raffi sings.
